Very few of us have it in our budget to go out and spend hundreds of dollars to make our house look like the home we want. But, it is important to create a sanctuary, a haven, for yourself and your family and to do so frugally.
Finding fun and stylish accessories is easy to do when you shop in the right places. Etsy, craigslist, garage sales and vintage shops are all good places to find that special touch for your home that makes it your very own. You can add personality to your living space while supporting individuals or small business and by being green by re-using items.
One of the places I’ve found that you may or may not know about is Etsy.
Etsy is an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade. There are over 2,000,000 items for sale by 200,000 sellers from around the world. You can go shopping by color, time, geographic location, connected hearts, member-curated galleries, categories and more!
Just changing out a few throw pillows, adding a vase to a table or a wreath to your front door can make a huge difference in the feel of your home.
Adding unique pieces will give your home that warm, lived in feeling that we all desire.
Finding your own unique style is important in all that you do…your clothes, your home and your decor. So, the next time you’re feeling change coming on, try finding one of a kind pieces of furniture by shopping local or by using online resources.
You can also use Pinterest to keep track of all your inspiration! It’s my new favorite site!
It can make all the difference of either a bland, boring home or a lived in, beautiful home!
